The month of November sure did fly by. I guess now it’s out with Thanksgiving and in with Christmas. The rest of my Thanksgiving holiday weekend went by nearly as quick as the first half. The highlight was definitely the Virginia Tech vs. UVA football game on Friday night. My dad, sister, and I went together, along with a few of my friends. We were all able to get seats right next to each other, which was pretty sweet.
It was 23 degrees outside, but we were able to squeak out with a win so the weather didn’t matter. Things got close during the 4th quarter, but the Hokies were able to pull it off in the final 2 minutes. Bowl eligible for the 22nd year in a row!
It was nearly 2 AM by the time we got home, and we were all exhausted. Saturday morning my dad, sister, and I hung out for a bit and just recovered from all of the excitement from Friday night. In the early afternoon I said goodbye to Dad and my sister as they hit the road to head home. Then I got ready and headed over to my friend’s house for ‘Friendsgiving.’ We had a full Thanksgiving-type spread and I had a great time hanging out with college friends who were in town for the football game. Once again I stayed up way past my bedtime and didn’t get home until after midnight.
When Sunday rolled around I was ready for a low key day. I spent some time cleaning the house a bit and doing laundry. Then I spent the majority of the rest of the day wrapping Christmas gifts.
I probably got about three-fourths of it done. I really enjoy wrapping Christmas presents, so it didn’t feel like a chore. I deiced to seize the opportunity to get some wrapping done yesterday, since I’ve got lots of stuff going on pretty much every weekend between now and Christmas. Once that’s out of the way I can just relax and enjoy all of the festivities!
